The partnership was a huge success and enabled staff from across all regions to get engaged in fundraising activities including; quiz nights, marathons, pamper days, football tournaments, treks to the Himalayas, wide scale cycling events and much more!
The total also includes considerable funds raised as a result of Cushman & Wakefield's Chief Executive nominating us as the beneficiary charity for the BCO (British Council for Offices) 2016 annual conference and cycle challenge which added £42,000 to the overall total.
Kate Collins, Director of Fundraising & Marketing at Teenage Cancer Trust, said:
Cushman & Wakefield employees and their supporters have made a huge effort for Teenage Cancer Trust - taking on epic challenges, scrambling up mountains, baking and quizzing their way towards smashing their target. The £247,000 they’ve raised will help us get ever closer to reaching all the young people who need us and we can’t thank them enough.
Colin Wilson, Head of UK & Ireland at Cushman & Wakefield, said: "We set out to support a charity where the impact of raising £150,000 over three years would make a real difference. Teenage Cancer Trust may not be a large charity but it does have real impact on those it seeks to support. Staff chose Teenage Cancer Trust and the fact that their cancer units are in the same cities as our offices has ensured everyone really got behind the cause. Surpassing our original target will enable the charity to help those it serves just that little bit more. A massive thank you and well done to everyone that contributed and took part."
